The meaning of “cultural patrimony” includes today both the objects and the popular traditions, that is including both the material and immaterial values. Territory, local architecture, daily life uses and customs have been placed side by side to “dignified” finds – in the role of testimony of the past – with equal dignity. Such testimony is firmly connected to the territory and its landscape. Actually, sites of archaeological interest are recognized not only for their intrinsic value, but also for the space that they represent. Today, a greater attention is paid to natural environment and there is a greater awareness that the “archaeological heritage” assumes a connotation more and more tied up to the territory that identifies it. The interpretation of testimonies is now moved towards new models of communication, according to the requirements of public presentation. Especially when the prehistory is exhibited, the risk to represent a “not realistic” past is high. Some of the numerous strategies of ‘presentation’ of prehistoric contexts will be described, selected among those pilot experiences, in which the narration of the territory has been englobed in an ampler narration of the landscape, intended as a whole of relationships between natural and cultural elements, in mutual influence.
